When I got Wendy Goodman's The World of Gloria Vanderbilt from the library, I was overwhelmed by the beauty. Goodman shows an excellent use of color and a talent for page layouts in this photobook/biography about Gloria Vanderbilt, who was born into the rich Vanderbilt family who gained their fortune "from railroad and shipping empires".
